Senators make final push for cybersecurity bill

Supporters of comprehensive cybersecurity legislation are making their final push in the Senate, with time for action quickly running out.

Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) and four co-sponsors¬†introduced¬†a revised version of their Cybersecurity Act on Thursday after extensive negotiations with the bill’s critics.

Lieberman has said he expects the Senate to take up the legislation next week.

The changes to the bill appear to have won over privacy advocates, who had worried that the old version would encourage companies to turn over their customers’ personal information to military spy agencies.
